  1. Bayesian Bouffant, FCD says:

    Grazier and Plait spoke to an audience of about 100 Dragon*Con attendees and informed them that although NASA and its scientists continually push the boundaries of science, and numerous patents have been generated based on NASA research, NASA is unable to promote itself. No commercials, no ads, no billboards, nothing.

    Except for an occasional over the top press release event when they claim to have discovered arsenic-based life, or some such.
